He Said, She Said Tour
Wendelin Van Draanen
visits with the next and final installment of her Edgar Allan Poe Award-winning Sammy Keyes teen mystery series. Joining her is Mark Huntley Parsons
, who presents his debut young adult novel, Road Rash
, about a teenage drummer who finds out what life is really like on tour with a rock band.
In Sammy Keyes and the Kiss Goodbye
, Sammy doesn’t go looking for trouble, but she seems to find it everywhere. She’s forever sniffing out clues and chasing down bad guys—and driving her friends a little nuts. She’s gone up against thieves and counterfeiters and gangsters and blackmailers and murderers, and always stayed one step ahead. Until now. Last night, one of the bad guys caught up. Last night, someone followed Sammy up the fire escape and pushed her from the third story. Now she’s in the hospital, out cold. And her friends are left with the questions Sammy’s always been so good at answering: Why? How? But most of all…WHO? In this emotional conclusion to her beloved long-running series, Wendelin Van Draanen shows just how many lives one nosy girl can touch and pays tribute to a life well sleuthed.
In Road Rash, when 17-year-old Zach Ryan gets picked as the new drummer in a popular local band going on a long summer tour, he quickly learns about the challenges that come with life on the road. Playing in small venues, Bad Habit deals with a bar brawl and a manager who won't pay them, but the biggest problems come from within the band. Zach is a sympathetic "nice guy" narrator who is trying to be a responsible band member, despite being its newest and youngest addition. He's also good at expressing the thrill of creating music.
